DREAM MAKER by Katheryn Maddox Haddad
Today we welcome author Katheryn Maddox Haddad back as she previews the second book in her They Mey Jesus series, Dream Maker.
Do you ever feel like the triumph of good over evil is impossible? That’s what the Jewish revolutionary zealots tried to deal with.
Do doubts about the existence of God haunt you? John the Baptist kept asking for signs and reassurance who Jesus was.
Does Satan tempt you to do wrong to accomplish good? That is what Satan tried to do with Jesus.
How about making a list of your beliefs, then searching the scriptures to see if they are true? That’s what Andrew and Philip did.
Are people angry with you because you always tell the truth? That’s what Nathaniel was like, and Jesus praised him for it.
Is tithing a requirement? In the Old Testament it was in order to support the priests. But Jesus said the poor widow who have one penny gave more than the tithers.
Do you hold a position in your denomination you are afraid of losing if you pursue truth? That’s what Nicodemus faced.
Are you falsely accused of doing bad? The woman at the well lost five husband, perhaps in death, for she was respected by people in her city.
Is it okay for someone in high office to humble themselves? Check out the centurion who did.
Have you ever been very sick and unexpectedly got well? That’s what happened to Peter’s mother-in-law.
This series of eight novels—THEY MET JESUS—is dedicated to everyone who has ever doubted. It shows people who met Jesus in their stark humanness and curiosity, sometimes loving him, sometimes hating him, but never left the same. I was very careful about adding words of Jesus that are not in the Bible. At the end of each chapter are “Life Application Questions” for individual readers or book clubs, and ancient historical sources such as Josephus. At the end of each book are suggested readings for special occasions. COME, MEET JESUS ALL OVER AGAIN.
Katheryn began writing at age ten, and was “published” that same year in her local newspaper. She grew up in the cold north and now lives in Arizona where she do not have to shovel sunshine. She basks in 100-degree weather along with my palm trees, cacti, and a computer with most of the letters worn off.
With a bachelor’s degree in English, Bible and social science from Harding University and part of a master’s degree in Bible, including Greek, from the Harding Graduate School of Theology, she also has a master’s degree in management and human relations from Abilene University.
Her newspaper column appeared for several years in newspapers in Texas and North Carolina ~ Little Known Facts About the Bible ~ and she has written for numerous Christian publications.
She spends half her day writing, and the other half teaching English over the internet worldwide using the Bible as text book. She is a member of Christian Writers of the West and is also an energetic public speaker.
